The Suzuki XL7 is an instant blockbuster in Indonesia.
The Indonesian new vehicle market edges down -3.1% to 79.573 units in February, leading to a year-to-date volume down -2.8% to 160.008. Brand leader Toyota (+6.8%) swims upstream with a solid uptick leading to a 31.5% share while sister brand Daihatsu (-3.2%) follows the market to cement its 2nd place at 19.8% share. Honda (+6.9%) and Suzuki (+3.7%) round up the Top 4 with stellar performances. Nissan (+146.4%) and Isuzu (+13.2%) are the only additional Top 10 gainers, with Mitsubishi (-27%), Wuling (-27%), Hino (-26.4%) and Fuso (-21%) in dire straits.
Over in the models ranking, the Toyota Avanza (+24.2%) continues to benefit from a facelift-induced sales boost and holds onto the top spot with 8.9% share, keeping the Honda Brio (-5.8%) at bay. The Toyota Kijang Innova (+8.6%) is also very solid at #3 with the Daihatsu Sigra (+3%) and Suzuki Carry Pikap (+13%) rounding out the Top 5 in positive fashion. The Honda HR-V (+159.2%), Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap (+46.6%) and Toyota Calya (+8%) also shine in the remainder of the Top 10 but the hero of the month is the Suzuki XL7 landing directly at #12 after recently launching in India. The issue for Suzuki is that the XL7 is very close to the Ertiga, which as a result implies -54% to #20 this month.
